I really hate the rain.
I used to love the rain when I was little. I used to live in Palm Desert, so it was almost a novelty in a way, and better yet reprieve from the scorching summers that spanned from April to October. Rain was fantastic when it was an occasional thing, something that gave you an excuse to be insular and spend a day playing video games and lazing around.
Now, of course, the rain has come with uncommon frequency this year. Maybe it simply doesn't like me - at a time in my life when I want to be out and about, I'm forced to wear jackets that look out of place in Southern California, freezing on my skinny frame and praying for brighter days. I'm terrified about the future and have had nothing but problems with girls and friends, and I want nothing more than a day to go to the beach and get a tan.
At least I have an excuse to listen to music.Defeater

, but the story is the same one from their previous album told through…
